BrightDrop announced the opening of its first dealership, BrightDrop Greater Los Angeles in Fontana, California, marking another step toward commercialization of the company’s electric light commercial vehicles (eLCVs) for integration into customer fleets before the end of the year.
BrightDrop dealers will be available to support fleet customers with ordering, upfitting, and maintaining their purpose-built electric delivery vehicles.
“BrightDrop aims to be a one-stop-shop for our customers,” said Travis Katz, BrightDrop president and CEO. “End-to-end, we are providing solutions for nearly every aspect of the delivery journey and establishing our first dealership is a major piece of that puzzle. BrightDrop dealers will support fleet operators in their electrification journey, providing electric vehicle expertise and service.”
“We are honored to be selected as BrightDrop’s first-ever dealership,” adds Mike Caposio, dealer operator of BrightDrop Greater Los Angeles and operator of Caposio Buick GMC and Rotolo Chevrolet. “They have a world-class electric delivery van portfolio and share my focus on serving the fleet customer. I believe the era of all-electric fleets is here and I am committed to helping modernize America’s delivery fleets.”
“Mike’s forward-thinking focus on serving the fleet customer is a perfect fit with BrightDrop’s mission to help fleet operators seamlessly transition to an all-electric future,” said Scott Young, BrightDrop vice president of vehicle distribution.
